Fort Lauderdale, FL – Mark your calendars…the 2022 VCA Walk for the Animals benefitting the Humane Society of Broward County will be held in person on March 5th at Huizenga Park in downtown Fort Lauderdale. The 1.25-mile walk is accompanied by vendor booths, entertainment, prizes and more and will be a hybrid event this year.
You can attend the walk, or you can raise money and walk in your neighborhood on walk day, or be a virtual walker – raise funds and sleep in. It doesn’t matter how you choose to participate, raise $150 and get the official walk t-shirt. All funds raised go to help the homeless animals in the HSBC’s care, and support the shelter’s programs and services.
Walk participants who gather more donations will receive gifts for different fund-raising levels reached. For those who raise $1,000 or more your dog will be entered into a contest for a chance to be the 2023 Walk Cover Dog. The 2022 Cover Dog is Moët who resides in Fort Lauderdale with her human parents Andrew and Tanya Heller.
Have friends you want to walk with? Create a “Pack” of 2 or more friends or co-workers, raise $1,500 and get official walk pack perks. You can register now, visit www.Walk4theAnimals.com and start collecting donations.
